Corpse Party 2: Dead Patient Headed Westward In Fall 2018

About

The nightmare has returned five years after the events of Corpse Party: Blood Drive with an average junior high school student, Ayame Itou, suddenly finding her life turned upside down in the most unsettling way possible. Upon waking from a coma strapped to an operating table in a ransacked and seemingly abandoned hospital called “Amare Patriarcha Crucis,” Ayame realizes she’s locked in without any means of escape and with virtually no memories of her past. She is, however, not quite as alone as she first thought. Others occupy the mysterious hospital, but whether they are friend or foe remains to be discovered. Remains to be discovered…

Corpse Party 2: Dead Patient takes players on a dark and mysterious journey with Ayame and any other friendly faces she can find. Through the deserted halls of Amare Patriarcha Crucis, the party will solve inventory-based puzzles, collect medical charts of deceased patients, and avoid terrifying zombie-like pursuers in order to find much-needed answers, as well as—hopefully—a way out. Titled Corpse Party 2: Dead Patient NEUES in Japan, Corpse Party 2: Dead Patient is the definitive version of Dead Patient with updated graphics and additional scenarios. Corpse Party 2: Dead Patient exists as a standalone story within the Corpse Party series, allowing players to jump in regardless of their experience with past titles.

Key Features
  • Brand New Setting, Same Creepy Atmosphere: This time it’s not an otherworldly elementary school, but a quarantined hospital full of bloodthirsty zombies, supernatural monsters, and scornful shades.
  • Unique Cast with Some Familiar Names: Features an all new set of dramatis personae, yet still rewards series fans by tying back into the Heavenly Host arc with a few familiar names.
  • More Interactive Environment than Ever Before: Items can be equipped and used directly on the environment to solve puzzles, or held and used in protagonist Ayame’s hands for a variety of purposes. Ayame can also hide in cabinets to evade foes.
  • Original Indie Team’s Return to PC: The same team responsible for the 2008 Windows PC edition of Corpse Party is back! Features top-down 3D graphics with dynamic lighting, 360° control, emotional Japanese voice-acting, and one of series composer Mao Hamamoto’s moodiest soundtracks to date.

This is good news! And just when all hope was lost. An official translation might bring more traffic to the forum. And maybe a wider release of the game will motivate Grindhouse into keeping this project alive.

So excited to be able to finally play DP! I'm surprised though, I really didn't think they'd consider it. At least until other chapters were out or something in Japan. Day one purchase definitely.

Sadly, XSEEDS revealed on their Twitter that it's only going to have Chapter 1 and EX Chapter 1 for now ;-;

Yup. That's all that's released in Japanese currently, so that's to be expected. XSEED are only the localizers, so they need to wait for GrindHouse to make Chapter 2 onward before they can translate and release any of those other chapters in English.

I think Team GrindHouse will release the rest of the game instead of just Chapter 2

In an ideal world, that would be the case. However, I'm still rather skeptical. It's been a while, a few years, and the only thing was announced before this was the new engine. Considering how long that took...

I really doubt they'd release the rest all at once. Blood Covered was also a chapter-by-chapter release with the original PC version, so it makes sense for GrisGris/GrindHouse to stick with that, plus I imagine they'll be making the game one chapter at a time anyway, so if they were to avoid releasing it one chapter at a time, that'd mean a longer wait, not a shorter one (which is another reason I see them initially releasing it all at once as unlikely).

That said, I'm sure it'll be possible to buy all chapters together once they're all released, so if anyone doesn't like buying Dead Patient chapter-by chapter, that option should still be available; it just means more wait.
